Nevada County Child Welfare Services (CWS) has distributed their annual "Giving Trees" to different community locations. Every December, CWS works with community partners to collect donated presents for children in foster care in Nevada County. This annual tradition brings joy to foster children during the holiday season and helps support their foster families.
Each Giving Tree has tags for each child currently in agency care. The tags include the child's gender, age, and some of their interests/wishes. Simply take a tag, shop for the items listed, and return the tag and all donations of unwrapped gifts back to the pick-up site or to the Child Welfare Services office at 988 McCourtney Ave in Grass Valley. All gifts and tags will be returned to Child Welfare Services by Friday, December 18th, to be wrapped and delivered to a foster child by Christmas. All Trees will be put up directly following the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Stop by and pick a tag from a Giving Tree in the following locations:
- Nevada City:
- Eric Rood Administrative Center
- Nevada County Courthouse
- Grass Valley:
- Brighton Greens
- Caroline’s Coffee
- South Yuba Club
- Training Zone
